The Superstition Community Food Bank (SCFB) has announced the election of Lynn Hanson as President of the Board of Directors. Hanson, who formerly served as board secretary, started with the organization in client services and continues to be an afternoon shift volunteer. She is a resident of East Mesa.
Ms. Hanson brings extensive experience in marketing, community service, and fundraising to her new leadership position, much of it gained during her 42 years in Fargo, North Dakota. “I’m excited about the expansion of our boundaries, our facility and our services, “she says. “We will continue to aggressively pursue grants and look for new opportunities to better serve our clients. I want to get the word out to everyone that we’re here to make sure people have food, not just for an emergency, but whenever they need it.”
Joining Hanson in directing the future of the food bank will be newly elected Vice President of the Board Helen Kimble, who has literally spent a lifetime in volunteer service with both national and regional nonprofits. “What immediately caught my attention about the SCFB was the fact that eighty-nine cents of every dollar goes directly to feeding the hungry,” she says. “I have never seen a nonprofit maintain such a low administrative cost…that’s impressive! And we plan to keep it that way. Our donors can be assured that their dollars are being used as efficiently and effectively as possible.”
Other SCFB board members include Mike Stoddard, treasurer; Megas Croll, interim secretary;
Robyn Barker, Randy Beringer, Sharon Allison-Brown, Reginald Garnett, Tom Hall, Gary Kloefkorn, and Pat Palermini. For more information about donor, board, and volunteer opportunities at the food bank, visit www.superstitionfoodbank.org.
